Cody Dialysis Chicks – Cody, WY

codysdialysisChicks-group

Description:

  • We were able to raise a total of $1700 for the Cody Council on Aging (Cody Senior Center)
  • We had 33 tables occupied by vendors at our event.
  • We had 5 tables occupied by educators, with the following topics: Living Well on Dialysis (Clyde), Resources in our Community (Cody Senior Center), Chronic Kidney Disease Care (Hope with REACH), Eating Well/Kidney Disease Prevention (Liz), Access to Affordable Healthcare (Heritage Health Center).
  • We used a “dance card” format, where people became eligible for door prizes upon visiting our 5 educational tables. We had a total of 113 completed “dance cards” turned in during our 5 hour event. There were many other attendees who visited the tables but opted not to complete the “dance card” or enter for a door prize.
  • 19 local businesses and 12 of our event vendors provided gift cards or merchandise donations which served as our door prizes. With the larger items, we created a raffle table, which brought in over $200 for the Cody Senior Center.
  • Our total expenditures for the event were $1514.13.

Purpose:

This project will bring awareness of kidney disease and organ transplant in a fun environment for the community.  Hopefully, with avertising and a kidney booth among the other venders, it will bring out people in the community to find out more about organ transplant.  With the lecture, it would give education from a physician with the opportunity to ask questions.  We could, also, give free blood pressure screenings to touch on the aspect of hypertension and how this can affect kidney function.
